DR. BOB GLEESON - PROGRAM ON CORONAVIRUS

Rotarian Bud Hammes informed us of this timely and relevant program that Rotary Club of Milwaukee streamed last week.   Though we cannot meet this week in La Crosse we are suggesting you take time to view this video or listen to the podcast.
 
Program by Dr. Bob Gleeson.
 
 
 
Coronavirus, What do we know, where are we now, and where might we go? 
Coronavirus is suddenly upon us.  How did we get here?  What do we know for sure?  Where might we be headed?  How will this end?  And what can I do to protect my family and business?
Dr. Bob Gleeson has studied pandemics professionally for Northwestern Mutual and personally for 25 years.  He shared his learned insights and governmental guidelines for care.

Associate Membership is a program to recruit younger members, millennials, to membership.  Associate Membership is available to anyone who is proposed for membership who is 35 years of age or less.  Associate membership will end when that member reaches the age of 38. They would pay for dues and $100 for meals per quarter no matter how many meetings they attend that quarter.

Corporate Membership is a program to allow multiple employees of a business Rotary participation under one primary membership. Each corporate membership is limited to a three-year term. After the three-year corporate membership term, the individuals are required to become individual members. View Corporate Membership Policy.

Family Membership is a program to allow a second individual Rotary participation under one primary membership.  View Family Membership Policy.

Honorary Membership  is offered to members who have distinguished themselves by meritorious service in the furtherance of Rotary ideals.Unlike other membership categories that can be requested by the member, Honorary Membership is bestowed upon a member by election from the Board of Directors.   View Honorary Membership Policy.

Excused Membership is offered to members if the aggregate of the member’s years of age and years of membership in one or more clubs is 85 years or more, the member has been a member of one or more clubs for at least 20 years, and the member has notified the club's secretary in writing of the member’s desire to be excused from attendance  and the board has approved.  Excused Members will pay the quarterly dues and only for meals when they attend a meeting.

Membership Proposals....we will no longer ask for three references when you propose a new member.  This was a criteria that our club had set not RI.  This will help us process new members into our club more efficiently.  You can access the membership proposal form online, under the Club Information site page.

On December 16th 2019, our friend David Knutson passed away unexpectedly. He was an active member of the Rotary Club of La Crosse-After Hours with a passion for supporting Rotary youth programs. To honor Dave's memory, our club is determined to create an endowed sponsorship for a student to attend Rotary District 6250 - RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) annually, in his name. Our goal is to raise $4,200.

Donations can be made at our website:
https://rotaryafterhours.org/page/memorial-youth-sponsorship

Or by check: Payable to Rotary After Hours, add Memorial Youth Sponsorship to the memo field, and mail to:


Rotary After Hours, P.O. Box 1622

THE BRAIN GAME 

The Brain Game
 

"The Brain Game" is a user-friendly educational guide which explains to parents why and how their child is learning and developing. Additionally, the book includes specific activities, songs, and suggested behaviors that parents can engage in to help foster their child's intellectual and social development. 

The Brain Game was born when the Director of the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families spoke to the Rotary Club of La Crosse, WI. She was excited to spread the word of new, cutting-edge research into early child brain development. More than ever before, scientists discovered that proper stimulation of children in the first three years could play a huge role in growing a healthy brain.

During this meeting we'll learn more about The Brain Game, along with some exciting new developments around it.
